Apple iPad Pro 10.5 inch review: Can this replace the laptop?

 

Apple iPad Pro 10.5-inch review: iPad Pro 10.5-inch is a new size for the series. Apple might well phase out the smaller 9.7-inch version as this new size gains ground. The new size offers more real estate, especially since it has a thinner bezel than...

iPad Pro 10.5

 

iPad Pro 2 10.5 review, price, release date and features: Apple gets closer than ever to offering a true laptop alternative, with an amazing screen

Amazing display ; Extremely powerful ; Promise of iOS 11 ; Works brilliantly with Pencil

Big price jump from previous iPad Pro models ; Expensive peripherals ; No fast charger in the box

Look past the price and this is a stunning tablet that needs iOS 11 to really feel complete.

Apple iPad Pro 10.5-inch review

 

Apple's 10.5-inch iPad Pro is the best tablet in the world, period.

Excellent display, with high refresh rate ; Buttery-smooth performance ; Long battery life ; Robust tablet-support apps ; Great camera, speakers

Pricey ; No fast charging

Apple’s latest iPad Pro is the best tablet you can buy. It excels in nearly every category, remains a fantastic tool for artists, and continues to define the tablet market.

Apple iPad Pro 10.5 review: Where execution and ambition meet

 

iPad Pros have always been great options for people who need high-powered tablets, and the new 10.5-inch model is no exception. It's a more exciting update than it might initially seem: The screen is bigger and brighter than before, and the new A10X...

Incredibly powerful for an iPad ; Bigger, better screen ; Sleek (if familiar) design ; Great cameras

iOS 11 isn’t out yet ; Expensive ; Shorter battery life than some competing tablets

No matter how you slice it, $649 is a lot of money to drop on an iPad. In return, however, you get one of the most powerful tablets around. Most people like the idea of a second screen for occasional web browsing on the couch when they can't be...

iPad Pro 10.5 review: the top tablet out there got a little bigger and a lot better

 

Apple's new 10.5-inch iPad Pro replaces the 9.7-inch model and slots in under the 12.9-inch version

Great new screen ; Pro-level power ; Still really portable ; Top battery life.

Expensive to add Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard ; Do you need the Pro power?

Apple iPad Pro 10.5in review

 

Performance and productivity combine in the best tablet money can buy...

Powerful sound from the speakers ; Impressive display ; Unparalleled performance ; High-quality cameras

Not the most affordable tablet on the planet ; Overkill as a pure multimedia machine

Pricey, but the latest Pro cements Apple’s position at the top of the premium tablet market, with performance and software future-proofing that should keep it there for a long time yet

Apple iPad Pro (10.5-Inch)

 

Apple's 10.5-inch iPad Pro tablet packs as much power as a laptop, but using iOS for pro-level applications will take some getting used to for many professionals.

Extremely fast. Light. Excellent screen and cameras. Better battery life than previous iPads.

Expensive. Using iOS for pro-level applications requires a shift in thinking. Screen technologies may be too advanced to perceive.

The current non-Pro iPad, starting at $329 for 32GB, is all the slate you need for traditional tablet use, which includes games, magazines, comics, and basic email, writing, and web browsing. The iPad Pro starts at twice the price ($649 for 64GB), and...

The iPad Pro 10.5 is so good it’s basically showing off

 

Apple extends its tablet lead, but iOS 11 might end up being a bigger deal.

Incredible screen ; Slightly larger size makes typing easier ; Powerful processor

iOS 10 not built for all this power ; Expensive ; Accessories like the Smart Keyboard make it even more expensive

Apple extends its tablet lead, but iOS 11 might end up being a bigger deal

Apple's 10.5-inch iPad Pro: Great hardware waiting for iOS 11

 

The promising new hardware is here now, but it's the software to come that could advance this tablet to the next level.

Excellent display, upgraded storage options, faster processor, better cameras and a bigger display in a still-compact size. Faster refresh-rate display also means faster Apple Pencil responsiveness.

Most of the cool new software features require iOS 11, which isn’t coming until September. No newly imagined accessories and the ones you need (Pencil, keyboard) drive up the cost to laptop levels.

Apple’s 2017 iPad Pros improve on already excellent drawing, video and photo capabilities, but its true potential won’t be seen until iOS 11 hits later this year.
